Please be kind to Bill Nigro…
A certain local blogger – let’s see, what is his name? Oh yeah, Tony – has been riding the Kansas City Strip trolly system hard and putting it away harshly on his blog Tony’s Kansas City.
Not enough riders, too much tax money – never shoulda been subsidized by Kansas City, Tony says.
Enough already, Nigro cries.
"Tell him to take his stick away and come help us," Nigro says. "Tell Tony to come stand with me at the trolly stops on a Saturday night and he can help greet and welcome people to Kansas City."
As for Strip ridership being a little light in the loafers…
"We’re going to be busting loose at the seams when the warm weather hits," Nigro vows. "People are just starting to discover us. I’m on a mission to make this thing happen. Because if we wanna be a first class city, we need the amenities to attract conventions and tourism to town. And I wanna be a part of that."
